Church High was a bit out of my league but you might know my next door neighbour Keelie Lightfoot who could have been about that age. [Apologies for derailing the thread, living as remotely as I do this is as near as I get to a family reunion!]
My sister lives in Jackson Street right by The Chesters. I grew up in Ettrick Grove then my Mam moved to Alexanfra Road about half way between The Barnes and The Rosedene. I used to work in The Barnes when I was in school. Now I live in Florida! I bet if you're 'of a certain vintage' we'll know people in common. There was quite a group of us Mod-inspired spread between Bede and Thornhill but that was when we were teenagers a long time ago, and there wasn't much of a scene...
Very nice SS. I've given you shit in the past for your more 'out there' fits (although I do like a few of your flamboyant touches). This one is comparatively demure for your style but no less admirable.
This! Spotted at the airport one a couple of guys in business suits wearing low vamp rawhide topsider type moccasins. It might have saved them thirty seconds having to re-tietheir shoe laces after clearing security but it looked atrocious!
Very well presented but errrr ... couldn't you have ironed your shirt?
Different film. I'm on about Goldeneye where I think they used Puerto Rico in place of Cuba for the big underwater satellite dish secret underground lair finale. Prior to him going I to combat he's in a tan suit and white shirt on the beach.I believe they filmed in Cadz for some of the scenes in Die Another Day where he first met Halle Berry??
Yes - the idiocy of 'sprezz' was made clear to me by none other than Brunello Cuccinelli who, in an interview in one of the men's magazine a couple of years ago, said that he has to tie his tie six or seven times each morning to get it to look the right amount of wrong ... or something!Folks like Timo and Phat Guido used to continually ruin (for me) otherwise exemplary outfits with this kind of gimmickry. Unfastened shirt cuffs, crappy bracelets, poorly tied ties ......
- perfect! I always liked that outfit and think it's held up well, and doesn't look dated. He wore a similar tan linen suit on the Puerto Rico / Cuba beach scene in Goldeneye but it doesn't look nearly as good with a white shirt.
iYes!For some reason I've seen saturated blue shirts get bad reviews on this site but I think they look great against pale tan / khaki suits and blazers, especially as you say to avoid washing out a light skinned dude.
Textures and colors - NOBD is a master at this!NOBD if you're looking in your presence is needed in that 'Casualising the Suit' thread. Your grey flannel with suede chukkas will fit right in!
